Resumen

YAMAMOTO TANAKA, Nancy Yukie et al. Impact of intrahospital informatization on cost management: Integration of electronic prescription of pediatric formulas and enteral diets with their respective production areas. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2015, vol.42, n.1, pp.30-34. ISSN 0717-7518.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75182015000100003.

Introduction: Informatization contributes to the integration among various sectors, cost reduction, and improved quality of services. This study aimed to assess the impact on cost/benefit of the integration of electronic prescription of pediatric formulas and enteral diets in the respective production areas in a hospital. Methods: We analyzed the quantitative consumption and financial cost of the products corresponding to 80% of the budget ceiling for the annual programming of each modality during 2 consecutive months in two steps, i.e., before and after the implementation of the new module. Results: A more effective control of the quantities produced and of the final products dispensed was observed, reducing both the traceable and untraceable demands (an 85% reduction in financial terms from R$ 3770.25/months before to R$ 566.73/month after). Conclusion: The change represented a technological innovation that improved the quality of the service provided and contributed to waste reduction.
